(Following are summaries from games played in the Daily Corinthian coverage area that didn’t make the print edition)
Itawamba AHS 42, Tishomingo County 9
A Jackson Price-Jones 60-yard touchdown run was the highlight for Tishomingo County in a 42-9 loss to the Itawamba AHS Indians on Friday.
Nathan Daniel booted the PAT.
"Our offensive line played a lot better tonight," Tishomingo County head coach Richard Russo said. "Our defensive backs played a lot better tonight."
The Braves defense forced a safety on a punt for their other points. But TCHS had to contend with 2020 2-4A Player of the Year Tae Chandler and the No. 4 Indians.
"(Chandler) is getting looks from Notre Dame, Ole Miss, a lot of schools," Russo said. "He's a really good player.”
The Braves (1-5, 0-1 in Region 1-4A) travel to Caledonia (5-1, 1-0 in Region 1-4A), a 49-21 winner over Corinth, next Friday. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
Falkner 54, Thrasher 0

The Rebels fall to 1-5 overall and 0-2 in Region 1-1A.
“We are still struggling to find the right chemistry,” said THS coach Ross Coley. “They (Falkner) had a really good running back, number three, that busted a couple of long runs on us and we just couldn’t contain them.”
The Rebels will return home for a Thursday game this week when they host Ashland.
